7 Tips to Prevent Bathroom Mold

As the hot and humid months of summer are quickly approaching, it is a good time to implement some practices that will prevent or reduce bathroom mold growth. Every bathroom accumulates moisture but by battling mold, you will keep the space clean, safe, healthy and also attractive.

What causes bathroom mold?

  • High moisture levels due to lack of proper ventilation
  • Leaky plumbing pipes and fixtures

Heat and moisture accumulate on a regular basis in bathrooms, providing the perfect environment for mold to grow. Not only can mold impact the appearance of your bathroom, it can also cause damage to your walls, floors, ceilings, and even your health. Mold prevention is essential in ensuring your bathroom is in good working order.

Follow these 7 easy tips to keep your bathroom mold-free!

  1. Check for Leaks – Examine all fixtures and piping under the sink for leaks which may quickly produce mold growth.
  2. Wipe Down Bathroom Surfaces – After a bath or shower, squeegee excess water off shower walls. This eliminates at least 75% of the moisture that supports mold and mildew growth.
  3. Turn on the Ventilation Fan – Every bathroom needs a powerful fan that should run during the shower or bath. It should remain running for about thirty minutes after to effectively suck the moisture out of the air.
  4. Keep Minimal Items in Shower/Tub – Store any necessary bottles or toys in wire baskets or on hooks. This will allow everything to drip dry.
  5. Clean the Bathroom Weekly – As dust is a food source for mold, dust your bathroom regularly with a dampened microfiber cloth. Scrub the toilets, counters, sinks, tub and walls, as well.
  6. Seal Grout Lines – If you have tile, it is important to seal grout lines once a year. A standard grout sealant is sufficient to prevent mold from growing in between the tiles.
  7. Manage Household Humidity Levels – If your house is already humid, it is advisable to use a dehumidifier or run the AC to help the moisture in the air.

By following these 7 easy steps, mold growth should reduce significantly. Remember – the best way to fight mold is to keep the bathroom dry! By implementing the practices above, your bathroom should continue to be a clean and healthy space to enjoy.

Needed rush service today and Zeek was able to deliver. Bill and Rich both got to the root of our leak and were able to fix it. Great service with great guys!!!
Steve C.
Zeek plumbing was great to work with when we were redoing our half bath. They actually rescued us from another plumber who left us mid-job. They were honest about when they would be able to come and arrived on time. They were very respectful towards me and checked in with me along the way about the progression of the job. They installed a sink and toilet and when we realized the toilet did’t have a seat, they went out and got one and came right back. They aren’t cheap but they do a really good job. They even came back a third time the same day when I called to tell them that the sink looked slightly crooked and they fixed it right away. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.

Excellent service! Had a problem with shower drain. Technician came and resolved within an hour, also tested for leaks. Courteous, respectful, normal, and offered decent pricing quotes on toilet installation. Local business that cares about quality of work and happy customers. Will definitely be using them in the future.

Angel & Oliver came yesterday to fix a clogged sink drain. They were so considerate of my napping 4-year-old grandson that the slept through their entire visit. They took care of the job quickly (and quietly), and worked extremely cleanly. I was quite impressed with their professionalism, their friendliness, and their consideration about nap-time. I highly recommend them.
